Another weird day, Drew was heading back up to the fire and of course it screws up everything "normal" I've established right now. I'm craving sugar again and so that is the reason for the banana/cashew butter smoothie at dinner...helps conquer the craving with real foods.

Cheese is better than sugar, but it still produces an insulin spike, even without the carbs. It is a weird phenomenon with cheese. Just so know you the reason physiology behind it. Note: I didn't say it wasn't a better option.

Yes I've been relying on cheese as a healthy snack/alternative. I need to cut back but it's hard bc it feels like a staple in order to be lower carb.

Looks like you logged this right after I'd checked for the day yesterday. Sorry about the delayed response.

I notice the increased cheese. That is a normal stress reaction. I think you handled it well, if that was the case. You aren't the only one that goes for that instead of sugar and lots of carbs. If you remember from the sugar craving class I gave last year (I think you were there), I give a series of ways to help with the sugar. If you don't still have the handout, I can send you one.
